Everything was delicious!!!!!
great wine list, attentive staff, lovely atmosphere
My wife and I have been here almost a dozen times and honestly it’s hit the mark every time
John and his staff have never disappointed us and it’s truly worth the drive of over 1 hour to eat authentic Italian food
We look forward to 2020
As always, the food, service and ambience was excellent.
The food at Ovest is excellent and very good value. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for great Italian food that never disappoints!
This place never disappoints and the unique dishes are always delicious.
The atmosphere is good and the food fantastic. I had the mushroom and truffle ravioli and it was terrific. The risotto was pretty good too, but not nearly as good as the pasta. The waiters were both friendly and helpful. Overall, I'd recommend Ovest.
John and his staff never disappoint
Last nite was exceptional
Our son lived on King W for three years. Before a recent trip to Toronto we asked him what restaurants he would recommend. He said, “You must go for dinner to Ovest Cucina!” Six of us went for dinner and we were so glad we did. Ambiance, food, service, and noise level were all perfect for a social evening of fun with family from San Diego and Chicago. We can’t wait to enjoy Ovest Cucina on our next reunion!
very tasty and imaginative food pairings, lovely service and great wine selection. we will be back!
I really liked this place. They have a good menu, maybe a few more options as it classifies itself as a wine bar. Good location and staff was very welcoming.
We were pleasantly surprised. Great decor and ambiance. Service superbe and the food to DIE FOR. So many good choices and options. And of all the selections we made, we enjoyed every single one and portions were really large.
Was there for a business lunch mid-week. Was very quiet, so great for a meeting. Food and service was impeccable.
Good food and great service. Will definitely return
Awesome. Great food and atmosphere
Significant delays in getting our food, even our starter, which did not require any cooking. In fact the cheese was very cold, clearly straight rom the fridge.
Pasta and pizza were very tasty, but salmon and vegetables were drenched and soggy. There were a couple large groups in the restaurant, but the restaurant was not full. I think if things were going to be delayed, we should have been offered a glass of wine, another starter, or something, to acknowledge this issue, and keep us happy.
I liked the layout of the restaurant and the ambience, but service and kitchen delays need to be addressed.
Would try it again, for a second chance, but one of our group would not.
Great wine list and good food
Outstanding service and food
What can I say. Best place to go to feel great.
Amazing service, quiet for a celebration and the sever was great!!
Service and ambiance was great. Pasta carbonara was quite salty though. The pizza held its own and wasn’t floppy like other restaurants ..very tasty !
Still my favourite authentic Italian restaurant in the city
It’s was excellent! Great food, and amazing service.
We were there to celebrate our 25th anniversary. Added the note to our reservation and were looking forward to a lovely night. When we arrived, there was no acknowledgment of our anniversary note in the reservation so that was a little disappointing. Food was fantastic! Service overall was a little slow but pleasant. After our dessert we waited almost 20 minutes for our bill before I had to go and ask someone for it. Our server and everyone was distracted by 3 large tables and a couple of "favorites" tables. It was disappointing given it is usually a wonderful evening out.
Came for my daughters bday on recommendation from neighbours.
Can't believe we didn't come earlier.
The decor is spectacular.
We all felt the food was better than our 25 yr staple (terroni).
All dishes were very well prepared and flavourful. The hot sauce i asked for was fantastic (and very very hot).
Lots of excellent, reasonably priced wines (40-60).
I had heard prices were high but portions were large. I didnt find the prices that out of line with the other Italian places we eat at in the neighbourhood. Thr burrata seemed very cheap compared to other places. And the portions were definitely large. All 4 of us had take home breakfasts.
We'll be regulars.
What a fabulous dinner we had with friends here! Everything was perfect! Can’t wait to come back!
It’s always wonderful coming here!
Attractive space and good service. Interesting menu with reasonable prices. Extremely loud noise from the crowded bar area.
The food, though strongly flavoured was delicious and the service was outstanding. The portions were substantial and the bread with roasted garlic was great as well.
The food was very good. Service started out good but a couple of large groups came in and were ignored a bit for a bit too long. Waited quite a while for our cheque. Looked a little understaffed if they knew the larger groups were coming. Enjoyed the food for sure. Will definitely go back
My wife and I were hoping for a quiet birthday dinner but the room was so noisy we could barely hear ourselves speak. The service was good until the end when it took forever to order dessert and get our bill. Food was very good but I’m not sure we’ll go back because of the noise and the service.
Great Food with ample portions. Will absolutely come back.
Restaurant was great, OpenTable screwed up. Said we could not book a reservation for more than 6 people, yet the restaurant was empty. We let the restaurant know that we had more people that wanted to come but did not because of this.
Food was fantastic! We were a group of 6 and everyone ordered a pasta. Prices were very reasonable for the portion size and quality of ingredients. Restaurant was not busy when we were there (6:30 pm on a Friday). Found this odd given how good everything was. Will be going back!
Love this place! Not sure why it’s not more recognized in Toronto. Really good fresh Italian food better than most of the more well known places in Toronto
Food was fresh hot and delicious. Service was wonderful. Excellent value for your dollar.
Perfect night - amazing food, service and ambiance
Great food and amazing service
